    Welcome to my new grow, my dear AFNers! I owe my first grow to ALL of you, whether or not you came by my grow, cos I read yours!

    Will be getting the potting soil and perlite I need tomorrow and start mixing up soil. Then, will start soaking seeds.

    Soil for this round will be mostly the same as last grow but with a little more addition:

    40% Potting Soil. No nutes.
    20% Worm poop
    20% Perlite
    10% Biochar - Local formula
    10% Neem Cake + some dry fert mix I used last round + Vaped grinded buds from last grow (all 6 plants) + a little Garden Lime + a good layer of pumice stones on bottom

    Basically, the only difference is reducing potting soil and adding Biochar, garden lime and vaped buds.

    I wanted to do 4 plants max but after seeing my new lights in action, I'm going with 5. Basically, after this round, I would have grown out all the strains I bought, including the dual seed freebie packs. I have more than enough lights so if i really run out of space, will just put a plant under a pair of COBs somewhere.

    Added more security, protection and stealth features just cos...

    They will be 1 plant x 5 strains= 5 plants. Last grow, was 2 plants x 3 strains = 6 plants. All in 5 gallon fabric pots, which I poured out all the old soil BUT I did not wash them. Is that ok?

    Lighting will be predominantly 2 x 800 diodes Quantum Board. One board in 3000K (Flower) and another at 4000K (Veg). Each board can be powered from 14W to 350W.

    The 800 board for veg should be WAY more than enough and probably won't even come close to being driven to max.

    In flower, I have purchased 2 x 26W UVB 10.0 reptile CFL bulb with reflectors and dimmer. All for around $30. Most likely start them a few hours a day and slowly increase. Am gonna start the UVBs once I see the slightest hint of frost or a little before that? Suggestions anyone?

    Besides that, I still have the choice of breaking out my COBs as side/ angled lighting. I have 3 pairs of 3500K COBs and another pair of Full Spectrum blurples. Not sure if they will be needed or how best to utilize them yet, but I really like the idea of dimming the QBs just enough to also use COBs on them.

    Nutes will be all Greenleaf Nutrients products. Megacrop with Sweet Candy during Seedling to Veg. Megacrop with Mother Monarch Bloom and Sweet Candy during early flower. And Megacrop with Red Line and Sweet Candy from late flower till finish!

    Did not flush last round and do not plan to this round.

    I hope more of you can join me on this grow and help me achieve an even better harvest than last grow.

    Ohh...the strains (All Autos) are:
    1 x Purple Mazar from Flash Seeds (Not optimistic due to my climate. At least not expecting any purple but fingers crossed)

    1 x Auto Kush by Seedsman (@Avalanche Blanche *wink*)

    1 x Diesel Auto by RQS

    1 x Auto Lemon by Seedsman

    1 x Sour Hound Auto by Mephisto

    Needless to say, I might be getting in over my head with 5 strains this grow. Nutrient dosage and reading plant reaction will be crucial. Not sure if I have it in me?

    As for training, lets just take it one step at a time. Will update more if I think of anything else. Hope I get 100% germ rate this time too!

    Good luck bro, most purple autos do tend to purple on their own due to genetics but the occasional green pheno still shows up. Good luck man def up sounds awesome. And it sounds like you have more than enough light for this lol
    I'm in for sure bro.

    Much appreciated bro! The breeder info says it needs cool temps to turn purple. Thats something I don't have. So we'll see.

    You're right about the lights. I figured I can interchange them during grows or switch them up for experiments. Even create a dedicated veg area. But lets get this grow going before I get too far ahead of myself.

    Thank you so much for joining. I didn't even tag people cos i can't get the spelling right most the time. So u have no idea how much i appreciate this!

    Do help me keep an eye on my grow when it starts!

    Good luck dude. Sure you'll smash em with all that light.

    Why are you adding the vaped herbs? Cannibalistic reasons?

    The AVB is just a ritual I wanna start from now on. I explained this in my last journal. I hope it does some good as i don't see why not? My AVB is mixed with dark brown and very dark brown with some black so not really any second hand value left even for edibles. I combined AVBs from all 6 plants from my last grow/first grow and easily have a litre of it atm. The plan is to snowball AVBs from all plants from all grows. Each time i start a grow, it'll have the essence, spirit, chi etc watever else u call it, from all previous grows. Like i said, just a stupid ritual i wanna make mine.

    About the little box that pops up and autocompletes, it don't work with tapatalk. Only on browser.
